Whenever I do my work as a hypnotist, the first thing I need to understand is the root cause of the thought or behavior. The subconscious mind’s most important job is to stop a person from knowing things that the person is unable to handle consciously.
Sometimes repression of the memory is the safety valve that is placed in there. However, there are many times when the subconscious mind will put in thoughts and behaviors to distract the conscious from having to deal with the real cause of the problem.
The American Journals of Clinical Hypnosis, had an article in 2011 where hypnosis was used to help three children that were unaware of their habit of pulling their own hair, otherwise known as Trichotillomania. In these cases the researches found that the hair pulling was created to help the children to deal with negative feelings towards their parents. The parents worked with the researchers to get a better understanding of how to better relate to their children while the hypnosis helped them to stop the behavior as demonstrated in a six month follow-up.
I had a 14 year old boy who had a habit of pulling out his eye lashes, which was making his father crazy because of the silly way his son looked as a result. The son was doing this behavior because he was upset with his baby sister having broken a snow globe of his several years earlier. Once we cleared this event for him, his eye lashes grew back in to stay.
If you know anyone who is pulling out their hair, understand that there is usually a deeper cause. Many times it is a feeling of having ones boundaries being over run that needs to be cleared to allow the behavior to release.
